I love 5 day Test Match Cricket and to me this experience was for the Naturalist equivalent.
If you prefer 20/20 then go and see Meerkats in a zoo where you will be guaranteed entertainment but the purists will look down their noses at you.
So if you like getting up at 4.15 and then waiting expectantly for some action for 3 hours this is for you.
The action when it happens and if it happens (as in nature nothing is guaranteed) is the first sighting of a meerkat 10 metres away from you followed by sporadic sorties from other members of the family. We had that experience. If you are lucky they will then all introduce themselves have a frolic and then move off as a group to find breakfast. We were not lucky.
No matter, the extremely friendly and knowledgeable guide informed and amused us with plenty of stories and his passion for his subject shone through.
I know I should appreciate this wild experience and the work that has gone in to allowing me to get so close to nature, but personally I found it a bit too expensive for the experience I received.
